Pours a dark, slightly hazy mahogany color with a creamy light tan head. One the nose, vanilla, citrus, bready malt notes, a sweet berry note and a touch of spice. Nice, but mellow, citrusy hop bite on the taste, very strong toasty malt character, creamy vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon. Really reminds me of winter solstice, but with a nicer citrusy bite to it.

Drinking the 2006 vintage from my collection. This beer smooths out nicely with age; goo malty flavor, less intense spices. Aroma - Holiday spice with a hint of malt Appearance - Gorgeous medium-dark brown, medium head, clear Taste - malty spices, light Palate - medium to light body with full flavor; light carbonation Overall - One of my favorite beers that ages very well. Not an everyday beer, but great to pull out of the closet every once in a while.

Bomber----->nonic. Pours a clear light brown with a small, thick white head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and cinnamon. Flavor has roasted malt, cocoa, and slight spice. Decent creamy palate with a tad bit of carbonation. Nice winter beer that I will definitely revisit.

Poured from bottle to Engligh pint glass. Smooth aroma of lightly roasted pecans and vanilla. Smooth dark color with a lasting cream head. Feels like liquid silk in the mouth. Did I mention it was smooth? Finished slightly sweet with vanilla hints. Wow, no wonder its so hard to get this stuff before its sold out!

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Draught. Pours dark amber with thin off white head. The aroma is sweet with hints of chocolate, and malt. The flavor is very sweet but with a nice light balance of bitterness. Very drinkable.

Kleg (227) - The Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Clear mahogany pour with a khaki head and good retention. Smooth, dark, lightly roasted caramel malt flavor. Good lacing. Minimal spice taste and a little dark fruit. Tastes like a doppelbock light. I could do without the dark fruit.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2007
2006 bomber. Pine aroma with coriander, nutmeg, and ginger. Tastes like bitter gingerbread and mouthfeel is rather thick. Dry spice finish.

3.8
surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2009
22 oz. 2008 bomber. Pours bright copper with a dense, creamy tan head and lots of lace. Aroma is soft and sweet with powdered sugar and some biscuity notes, along with the omniprescent vanilla cream vibe. Flavor is sweet, malty, and creamy with strong vanilla notes and some traditional holiday spices; most comparable to cream soda - pleasant and different. Medium bodied and smooth. This is a nice beer that I look forward to every winter. Definitely a unique take on the holiday ale theme.
